The role of Executive Chairman has become available and the Society of Equestrian Artists (SEA) is seeking a Volunteer for this role.
The SEA was founded in 1979 under the Chairmanship of Norman Hoad, a notable equestrian and aviation artist. It exists to promote the practice of equestrian painting and sculpture and to advance public education and appreciation of this art. It does this by arranging public exhibitions, holding workshops and encouraging, through mutual criticism, discussion and example, the highest levels of artistic competence and showcasing members’ works through this website.
As a charity foundation the SEA relies on its members to fulfil voluntary roles with regard to organisation and running of exhibitions and the general administration and management.
The SEA holds an annual open exhibition, The Horse in Art, (which this year will run from 21 November – 4 December). In 2016 this relocates to the new National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art (formerly the National Horseracing Museum), in Newmarket. The SEA also has an active education programme for artist of all ages and abilities.
An interest in horses and/or art would be useful but not essential. The role requires working from home approximately half a day a week to oversee and coordinate the work of the Society assisted by the Honorary Secretary.
